Grant Johnson

As a first-year Television-Radio student, I look forward to taking advantage of the Park School of Communications' world-class opportunities.

I look forward to telling the stories of Tompkins County as a reporter for Good Day Ithaca on ICTV and making Ithaca laugh as an assistant producer on ICTV's game show, Fake Out. I deliver local, regional, and national news on Thursday mornings and Monday afternoons on 91.7 FM as a newscaster for WICB and VIC Radio. I am also a member of the New York Television and Film Student Alliance and Society of Professional Journalists. For my service this semester, I volunteer with a group of scholars to help elders with their technology in a project called Device Advice. Each week we will travel to a retirement community to teach them how to operate their technology and fix any problems. Overall, I look forward to giving back to the Ithaca community that I am happy to be a part of, and I look forward to telling meaningful stories and making lifelong connections during my four years in the Park Scholar Program.
